iSTART-TEK has always emphasized the importance of an ecosystem, since IC design customers often use the products of iSTART-TEK to perform memory test and repair operations directly. Some IC design customers may commission design service company to carry out the design of their memory testing and repairing circuits. In this case, the design service company will require the memory IP, and iSTART-TEK will recommend the memory IP supplier that has used iSTART-TEK’s product or the memory IP of the foundry to the design service company. During the final testing stage for the chips, quick memory diagnostic solution jointly developed by iSTART-TEK and automation equipment suppliers will be provided to the IC design customers, offering the fastest and most accurate memory diagnostic solution. The processes mentioned above form the basic ecosystem of iSTART-TEK. Once the development of EDA clouding service is finished in the future, a complete ecosystem will be built. In addition, through the collaboration with well-known cloud companies, iSTART-TEK will bring customers the convenience of one-stop service. Customers can complete several important steps in the IC design process through iSTART-TEK’s clouding service, such as IP procurement, outsourcing of back-end design services, and the selection of foundry and ATE.
